An Iowa City man has been accused of robbing and assaulting another individual.

Corlandis Chester, 26, was charged Aug. 22 with second-degree robbery.

According to a Johnson County sheriff’s complaint, the defendant and another male approached a man and asked for his money.

The man said he was scared and gave them the money he had in his wallet, the complaint said. The defendant was reportedly not pleased with the amount, and he and the other suspect allegedly began to beat the man.

After the beating, the man required medical attention, including stitches for a laceration on his head.

The police complaint stated that a witness attempted to break up the fight, but eventually the defendant and the other suspect ran away in different directions.

Both the defendant and one other male have been identified by more than one person.

Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony.
